    So Paula, what made you decide to become a teacher?

    I think that it was a case of my "calling" sneaking up behind me and bashing me on the head. My mother was a teacher in the 60's and her stories were hair raising. I also hated HS because I was quiet and didn't fit in with the cool kids. I absolutely did not want to be a teacher. I got my BA in Spanish with a minor in Russian studies and then said. "What the hell do I do with this."

    One day, I was hiking with my boyfriend (Future Hubby) and he looked down the hill we were climbing and said "Hey lets go see what graduate programs they have at that college." (Quinnipiac). They had a few, but the 1 year MAT (MA in Teaching)sounded good. I had no plans, so I went with the flow. I still wasn't sure I wanted to teach until my first year. Once I spent some time with my students in my own classroom, I was hooked. It was like being on stage every day, grabbing my audience and taking them where I wanted to go.

    My husband sometimes asks if I want to become an Admin...I answer, "Hell no, you get all of the bad stuff with none of the joy." The students bring the joy.

    Not a bad set of advice. I keep seeing "50" linked to "old," in magazines, TV ads, etc. it just pisses me off. When I'm old, I'll let you know, OK? It is sobering to read the obits and see so many people my age +/- dying. Incentive to keep eating well, playing often, and maintaining a good outlook.

    my motivation

    Things I choose to let go:

    All grains - including rice
    Refined sugars
    Legumes - including peanut butter
    Nuts and nut butters
    Alcohol and soda
    Chocolate
    Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
    Coffee and tea
    Eggs
    Curry
    White potato
    Dairy - including butter

    I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.

    I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.

    I feel old with the birthday being tomorrow. I've notice this in my 20's and am noticing the same with my 30's as well. I was fine up until turning the age of 25 and 35 respectively. I had the same issue each year until 30 hit and was fine again until 35. I'm not wanting 37 to hit at all tomorrow, whatsoever. I'm not sure if this is normal or not. All I know is that if I could hide in bed all day tomorrow, I would.
